Rosebud Card Sheets and Tutorial

Some have asked how the 'Rosebud Shelf' card is constructed...so I've put together a little tutorial and have included the sheets so that you can have a go yourself.

Here is the finished card.....

1 - Print all sheets [1 - 5]see below... on cardstock - and decoupage sheet [6] on your preferred paper.
2 - Cut out all pieces including white area slots.
3 - Glue wrong sides together with a gluestick..... i.e. .A&B, C&D etc...this will make the card more sturdy and will cover all white areas when viewed from every angle.

4 - Score and fold on all dotted lines.

5 - Fold glued piece A/B (main card) in half ...with the sentiment box (pink area on piece B) to the outside....this will be at the back of the card.

6 - Slide glued piece C/D through both slots...front first ...of the main card.....(fold the tabs on dotted lines to get through the slots) This will form the 'shelf'.

7. - Once slotted through...open the main card into a tent shape...then unfold the tabs at the back of the card.

8 - Decoupage the bow on the top of piece G/H then slide this piece through the slot in the tent area.
(Fold the tabs on dotted lines to slide through..then open tabs out when through)

9 - Thread glued piece E/F down through the back slot on the shelf...again folding then unfolding on dotted lines.

You can decoupage this piece either before or after slotting into place.
This is how you card should appear from above.

10 - Finally...slide piece I/J down through the front slot (no folding needed on this piece, it just rests on the shelf)

11 - Add remaining decoupage as required...add your sentiment and signature in the box on the back......card folds flat for posting.


Hope you have fun making this card.
